Rosemarie Vinci Mugherini, the founder and proprietor of Miss Rosemarie Hair Stylist, recently celebrated 60 years in business. Everett Councillors Fred Capone, Michael McLaughlin, Stephanie Martins and Richard Dell Isola recently presented her a citation on behalf of the entire City Council. Rosemarie first opened her doors on March 6, 1961, and she has served multiple generations of clients ever since.
Rosemarie was a trailblazer, opening one of the first, if not the first, female-owned businesses in Everett. After 60 years of service, her salon is perhaps the longest continuously operated sole proprietorship in the city. What an incredible achievement!
On hand to celebrate with her were many family members, including her husband, Richard; her daughter Michele; her daughter Lisa with her children: Samantha, Alexandria and John-Richard; her son Richard, Jr. and his wife, Erica, with their children: Matteo and Marcus. Also in attendance were many customers and friends. Some of her first shampoo girls, Diane and Ruth Malio – daughter and mother – were there as was her longtime associate of 55 years and dear friend, Patricia Guerrieo. Many hairdressers worked in the shop over the 60-year period. In addition to Rosemarie and Patricia there were Rita Noce, Luisa Barletta, Marion Saia and Sukey DiBenedetto. Rosemarie thanked all her assistants through the years: Ruth and Diane, Donna Crafts, Rita Noce Sr. and her own mother, Josephine Vinci. The event spilled into a two-day celebration because of all the people who wanted to share in the joyous occasion. Rosemarie thanked the gigantic crowd for all their love and support.
Congratulations, Miss Rosemarie Hair Stylist, a local business icon. Everett is truly lucky to have you.
